Today we began learning about how scientists classify items. We practised by splitting up into gender, than eye color, than hair color. The groups became distinctive based on common characteristics. We will be learning how classifying is used in the animal kingdom and relating this to our story on Ivan.
1) LA - using the peer feedback that your partner gave to you today, revise your journal that you posted on your website this weekend. Please ensure you have attached your newest revision (once you have done all what was recommended) to your Evernote so that you have 3 copies of your journal - this shows the progression of your learning. Post the "Revised" version on your website, deleting the old one.
2) Science - complete the classification key for the Treble Family.
3) Math - grade 7s - complete the Mid Chapter review, all questions pg 21
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
